ProComp Explorer Shocks

Well, after 153,000 miles on my '95 Chevy Siverado 1500 extended cab with Towing package, I thought it was time to change the OEM shocks. After consulting all the "young" truck guys I ran into at various times over the last couple of months, I went with ProComp. These guys swap out parts until they get it right. Even talked to 3 different guys who must have tried every shock out there.

I settled on ProComp Explorer 3000's. They make various versions for different applications:

1000's for OEM.
3000's for heavier duty use(towing)
9000's for 4X4.
MX6. 10way dial adjustable. Wanted these, but not available for some older trucks.
  • Replaces original equipment shocks for substantially improved performance, driving comfort and vehicle control in both on and off road environments
  • Can be installed easily on both stock and lifted vehicles
  • Twin-tube, cellular gas design prevents fluid foaming--reduces shock fade while adjusting to varying road conditions
  • Expanded twin-tube design increases fluid capacity by 50% to reduce internal operating temperatures while protecting vital components
  • 1-3/8" nylon-banded full displacement piston head ensures strength and long-lasting durability, Large 5/8" Chrome-hardened piston rod, double-welded shock mounts, and unique Teflon rebound stop handle the most demanding driving conditions
  • Covered by ProComp's Limited Warranty to ensure ultimate performance for as long as you own your vehicle
All can be installed in pairs for the really heavy use. Special brackets required.

Man what a difference. Installation took about 1.5 hours. Cost $126, free shipping from

The truck feels like it is brand new. It really put the snap back in it. I should have done this a long time of go.

Highly recommended.
